Bathrooms are no longer cold little rooms where you get in and get out as quick as you Loft Bathroomcan. The modern bathroom is a smart sophisticated hi-tech room that offer up luxuries such as  photosensitive mirrors to detect whether the ambient light is day or night, temperature control, luxury power shower with booster pumps and underfloor heating controlled by timers to suit busy lifestyles.

Add a bit of low voltage lighting, marble style tiles, a modern white suite and you have the ingredients for a superb luxury bathroom that is a pleasure palace compared to the old days.


GOOD DESIGN IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE BUDGET

I’ve seen many new bathrooms that have costs thousands but looked like a DIY job gone wrong mainly because the tiles weren’t right for the room or the layout wasn’t quite right. Some homeowners think that if they spend a thousand or so on the suite or 100 per m2 for the tiles that they are going to automatically end up with a luxury bathroom and that’s not how it is.

Imagine laying out a thousand for the suite and then having to position the loo in a really weird position or raise it off the floor a bit to suit the old cast iron waste? I’ve seen it Sunken Bath In Timber Floorloads of times as the plumber just wants to put everything back in the same position and he won’t be overly impressed that the suite cost a 1,000 or so; he just wants to get the job done, get paid and get home.

What should happen of course is that if you want a really nice bathroom you need a decent bathroom company to make it happen. What you don’t want is a plumber that just wants to throw the suite in to the same position.

A decent bathroom design company will measure and graph out the room to ensure that you are getting the best possible layout for your new luxury bathroom. Problems like old cast iron wastes have to be addressed and if modifications are necessary to the soil stack (drainage pipe) then so be it. The main thing is that you don’t muck up a luxury bathroom because someone doesn’t feel like getting the ladders out to make a few adjustments to the external waste pipe.

Most plumbers are decent but only a few have a flair for design. If you want a luxury bathroom refit then you don’t call in a plumber but a bathroom design company where design is part of the service.

The same company will deal with the underfloor heating, the tiling or the heated towel rail and will be responsible for the entire finished product. That’s a far better way to go and than you calling in plumbers and tilers and trying to get them to work together to make a luxury bathroom.


SETTING PRIORITIES FOR A GOOD BATHROOM INSTALLATION

When it comes to bathrooms I think that most people will agree that if you have a shower you want a shower that works. You don’t want to stand under a shower head with little more than a fast drip trying to rinse the shampoo from your head. In fact what most people love is to be battered a little by the shower so that it stimulates as well as washes so if that’s what you want then make sure you make it a priority right from the outset.

Next on the priority list is heating which provides for a hot towel as you step out of the shower. Some people install a towel rail that is heated by the central heating which is lovely - in winter! What about the rest of the year or at times when the heating is off and the wet towel that was put back on the rail earlier is still damp.

The smart thing to do here is to run the hot water through the towel rail which means that regardless of the time of day or time of year you will always have a warm towel when you step out of the shower.

Ventilation - fit an extractor with timer to take away the steam and of course the loo smells.

When it comes to lighting try to go for low voltage lighting, recessed is best if you can and don’t forget that the lights have to be suitable for a bathroom, especially the one that goes above the shower area, after all you don’t want a low voltage light exploding over your head whilst in the shower.


SO HOW MUCH TO INSTALL A NEW BATHROOM?

kay, lets have a look a the costs to see where the money goes. To start with a very basic bathroom suite replacement where the new suite simply replaces the old suite should start about 500 for the installation.

If you are going for a complete bathroom refit here is an indication of average costs subject to regional variations:
